• There are 11,842 lakes in Minnesota (10 acres or larger in size). But what constitutes a lake in Minnesota? According to the site, a "lake is not classified by size or depth as some may suggest." In fact, a lake may be defined as an enclosed basin filled or partly filled with water. In general, a lake is an "area of open, relatively deep water that is large enough to produce a wave-swept shore."
